Angel Falls in Venezuela are the highest waterfalls on earth.

The falls were named after Johnny Angel, an American pilot that explored the jungle of Venezuela.

it is the most stunning site I have ever been to.

It is not easy to get there but it is definitely worth the trip.

Angel Falls and Canaima National Park Jun 16, 2008
I went to Canaima Park with my boyfriend in June while we were staying at Margarita. Once we had paid the price of the trip (it was about £200)we had to pay airport tax and park entrance it would have been quite expensive, however it was definatly worth the money.

Native people actually live in the park as they were there before it became a national park and continue to go about their everyday lives. There is a school and shops etc, they are friendly enough and get used to tourists walking in their "town".

Once we arrived we walked down to the beach where we waited for a boat to take us to some other waterfalls in the park, the water was a tea/coffee colour which was where there is so much metal under the sea, this is bizzar in itself as there is white sand and "tea" coloured water washing up on it. Once we got to the other side we then walked behind some of the waterfalls, all i can say is that it was breath taking! a wonderfull experience.

Once we had walked back we got the boat back we had dinner and then made our way back to the airoplane. The pilots had explained as the weather was bad it would be too dangerous to go down into the falls of risk we wouldnt get back out. This was unfortunate but the trip had been so good although it was dissapointing it wasnt the end of the world.

I would definatly recommend the trip although it is alot of money it is worth it.

I've been asked by a lot of people about how americanised and touristy Venezuela is becoming. i have to say that when i went there it was still amazingly unspoilt - okay we didn't go to reknowned tourist areas such as Isla Margerita (and i would stay clear of that - extortionately priced) but it was still tourist-free.

The trouble is, what with Chavez making such a scene, a lot of people are being drawn to the place. and you could start to tell. loads of firms are now offering trips to these two awesome sights (and when i say awesome i mean AWESOME!!).

this is gonna ruin them. i mean now, if someone said 'Roraima' to you, unless you'd researched it you'd think they were drunk. Even 'table top mountain' brings Cape Town to mind - and we all know what tourism en masse has done to that place. but the tepuis are one of the awesome acts of nature we can't even begin to explain. Roraima is the highest and one of the most diverse places on earth; species live and grow there that exist nowhere else on earth.

if you're thinking of going, then go now - it'll only be a few years before Angel Falls becomes the next Niagra, and that's a shame because if you see them as i did, almost alone, they are truly awe-inspiring places... Both are definately worth the trekking and the rapids and anything else the elements can throw at you (rain, rain, rain) - both are truly fantastic, and so is the country they reside in
